Don't waste your money
This cottage was an absolute dump!
If you are looking for a clean cottage, a place you can come out of the shower feeling cleaner than when you went in, a place that you can bathe your children, without wearing shoes in the bathtub, then this is not the place for you.
this is a very old cottage that has not been maintained at all! Upon arrival I had to sweep the floors before we even went in. All the rugs in the cottage were dirty and disgusting. The furniture is ratty and dirty and the beds are so uncomfortable I could not get a good night sleep in the six nights I was there neither could anyone else.
The floors are a complete trip hazard for anyone and all the floors are leaning along with the entire cottage. The downstairs bathroom was disgusting and the toilet was an absolute joke. The only thing clean in the house was the refrigerator.
The view was outstanding and the lot on the lake was gorgeous. That was the only good thing about this cabin. I called the rental company freshwater vacations on Monday morning and still have yet to hear a word back from them and it is now Saturday night.
In a nutshell, I was left on my own never received a phone call back from freshwater vacation rentals the entire week I was there.
I would think that they would tour these homes before they stand behind them on their website but apparently they don't and they are just money grabbers like the owner of the cottage.
Disappointed sums up my experience with this entire rental. And if this saves one person from feeling the way that I do then it was worth it to speak the truth as I see it.
Lisa! I'm shocked by your harsh comments which reflect on us personally. We are a small, family business. I don't appreciate you misleading future guests about our customer service, nor our ethics.
Still, I hear you and understand your disappointment in this rustic, classic waterfront cottage.
On Monday, 7/29/2019 (the day after you arrived) at 11:15am, Haleigh spoke with you in depth. While you had a list of things you were not happy about with the cabin, we offered to send another cleaner out to re-clean and you refused. You said you "didn't want to be bothered" during your stay.
Therefore, we didn't call to see how you were doing, as we were respecting your wishes. We were under the false impression that since we hadn't heard from you again, and you stayed the whole week, that you were ok.
When you called again after your stay to vent your unhappiness with the cabin, I called you personally on Monday, 8-5-2019 at 8:50pm. I quickly returned your call, even though it was beyond standard business hours, when I heard how unhappy you still were.
Our conversation started by you accusing us of not returning our call earlier in the week. I reminded you that Haleigh spoke with you at length the day after your arrival at 11:15am on Monday, 7-29-2019. I reviewed Haleigh's notes, including the discussion you had with her about the luxurious rental you used to rent and the car trouble you had on your trip to the cabin.
We had an authentic, extensive conversation, which lasted over 1/2 an hour. When we hung up the phone, I had no reason to believe you were still unhappy. I thought we left on a good note. We agreed this was an older cabin with a lot of potential.
As a management company, we are conflicted, as the property owners are happy with it the way it is, and many guests express that they really like the place too. Still, as the owner of Freshwater Vacation Rentals, I realize that expectations from guests often exceed the description we write. The property owners love the feeling of a rustic, older cabin. Guests acknowledge it is a step-up from camping just steps from a gorgeous, deep lake. We do not advertise this lake house as luxury.
We are very clear in our description about the leaning floors, reminding anyone with vertigo and luxury expectations that Merry Mullett may not be an ideal fit. We will not be renting Merry Mullett Lake House in 2020 without major bathroom and mattress improvements.
Great vacation house on the lake.
Good location and rental process was easy and convenient.
Thank you for choosing Freshwater Vacation Rentals. Convenience is key! From the booking process to enjoying your stay. Merry Mullett is in a prime location where you can enjoy the all sports lake and quick access to the Mackinac Bridge. A great option to explore pure Michigan!
Great setting on the water. Everything we needed inside. Great communication from management company. Only negative would be the condition of the beds. Really need to be replaced.
Jeff, we are so glad that you enjoyed staying at Merry Mullett Lake House. Only 30 minutes from the Mackinac Bridge, the Merry Mullett Lake House is an old school family cottage. You have access to a 60' private dock plus a fire pit. Perfect for a summer vacation. We'll notify the owners about the beds.
The cabin was very cute and had lots of room for its size. Our stay was quite comfortable. We did have a boat - that has its own challenges as mooring and parking are challenging - as was specified in the ad. Small boats are best. Don't bring anything over 19'. Ingenuity goes a long way and we had a perfect stay! Lake is wonderful! Loved it!!!
Geralyn, we are so happy that you had fun at Merry Mullett Lake House, and we're glad that you figured out the boat issue. Swimming, hiking and biking are right there for your pleasure, plus you are only 30 minutes from Mackinac Bridge. Perfection!
Very relaxing simple old school place. Only bad thing is limited parking and 27 is kind of loud.
Mike, we're glad that you enjoyed Merry Mullett Lake House, and we hope you come abck again!
Relaxing Stay on Mullet Lake
We stayed at this cute lake house in August. The house is conveniently located with a walking path and small village nearby. We were able to launch our boat at the boat launch not far from the house. There is a convenient buoy in front of the house so we were able to leave the boat in for our stay. The cottage has lots of windows which open to create a wonderful breeze throughout the house. Even though the temperatures were in the 90's, the house remained comfortable. We had a great time and had plenty of room for 4.
Brenda, thank you for this wonderful review. We also love Merry Mullett Lake House. It's wonderful to swim right in front of the cottage, plus its proximity to Mackinac Bridge and Island simply adds to its charm.
